Public Works & Transportation

The Public Works & Transportation Department works to improve and maintain the city's infrastructure and services ranging from airports, mass transit, landfill operations, street maintenance, stormwater management and sewage treatment in order to support economic vitality and to provide a safe environment within which our citizens live, work and play. Each division is managed by a division manager and the public is encouraged to contact each directly regarding possible issues within their respective areas of responsibility.
